Our latest Pixels of Fury live design showdown was one of the most exciting — and intense — events to date. Six designers gathered at San Francisco’s Mezzanine during HOW Design Live and SF Design Week to tackle the challenge of creating original work from Shutterstock assets in front a live crowd. That they had only 20 minutes per round to do it in and that the crowd was gleefully plied with libations, adrenaline, and tacos only served to up the energy level that much more.
In the end, it was Butchershop Creative’s Trevor Hubbard who came out on top, but not before we saw some of the strangest, most compelling, entries in the history of the competition. Read on to view all the posters created during the event, and to check out a gallery of photos encompassing all the revelry, complete with a Bosco photobooth, Viewfinder napkins for quality doodling, and plenty of music, refreshments, and good company.
